Library Collection Chardonnay

R505
A vintage which will be remembered for drought and heat. Luckily for Waterford’s location on the Helderberg mountain and the near proximity to the ocean, the vineyards could cool down over night. The lack of water resulted in light bunches with tiny berries. Wines have great aroma profiles, true to cultivars and sense of place, softer acidities, but still have good sense of classic tight tannin structures, and lovely mouthfeel in the wines as well.
A vibrant yellow and lime green colour. The aromatics of this wine are driven by zesty lime, fresh peach pip and a light touch of oak from ageing in barrels. The age of these vines still proves to produce lovely restraint, tightly structured wines which are rather perfumed when young, but develop beautifully from time spent in bottle, between 3 to 5 years from release. This wine shows more minerality and flintiness than the standard wine due to the piece of vineyard containing more granite stone in the soil, this give the wine more tightness and a much better aging potential. The wine is also of a style more destined for classical aging. Younger than 3 years, it is suggested to allow the wine to breath slightly before serving or a soft decant if possible.
Waterford Estate, Stellenbosch
